YouTube DJ lets you play videos from your YouTube playlists and favorites. It can play music while the application is in the background, and can be controlled from the media keys on your keyboard. YouTube DJ will also block the ads from YouTube for the best experience!
Why pay for a music streaming service like Pandora, Spotify or Xbox Music when all the music you need is available on YouTube for free? Edit or create playlists directly from the YouTube website, then play them from YouTube DJ.
YouTube DJ will take your YouTube username and show you all your playlists, favorites and channel subscriptions. Tap a playlist to start playing, and let it play either in the foreground to watch the video, or in the background to keep using your computer while you listen to music. YouTube DJ will show you information about the current track in the Windows 8 volume control popup, and will also let you pause or skip to next track. Search any playlist on YouTube directly from the Windows 8 search. You can pin any playlist to your start screen, and start playing it with a single click. Use the settings charm to configure your preferred bitrate, from Standard Quality to 1080p High Definition.
YouTube DJ is completely free, and contains no advertising!
